Teen Time: How was Jesus political? (March 28th)

6th Sunday in Lent – Palm Sunday

Lent is the long purple section. It is 40 days + 6 Sundays before Easter. It is a time to think about our choices and how we want to do better. It is also a time of prayer and giving.

How to Lent for Teens

Everything Jesus did was political. Religion and faith should drive our politics of equity and openness, like Jesus taught.

Read Mark 11:1-11. Read it twice, it’s short. Everything about this passage is political.

Mount of Olives: place where the battle for the end times begins (Zechariah 14:4)

Colt: the saviour will come riding a colt (Zechariah 9:9)

Cloaks on the ground: how victorious kings were welcomed (2 Kings 9:13)

Hosanna: means “Lord, save us” and comes from the story of how the Hebrews kicked the Greeks out of Jerusalem (This is the lead up to the story of Hanukkah)

Just for fun
